UlixesPicture’s Mentorship Program is a unique initiative for emerging photographers to achieve and develop professional skills working close to Ulixes’ Photographers. For over a year, selected emerging talents will cooperate with Ulixes’ senior members towards a higher professional level.


Ulixes Photographic Mentorship Program aim is to support young photographers from a technical and professional point of view as well as for a marketing one. Being part of Ulixes Mentorship Program also means developing a own personal style, growing into the industry looking for the possibility to get published and approach the market with the right focus.


Il programma Mentorship del collettivo Ulixes Picture è un metodo di formazione didattico-professionale che si sviluppa tramite un servizio di tutoraggio mirato all’accrescimento, sviluppo e potenziamento delle capacità dei partecipanti in ambito fotografico e fotogiornalistico.


Il programma di Mentorship, offerto in forma gratuita ai partecipanti è la diretta espressione da parte dell’organizzazione, di voler credere ed investire nel confronto con talenti emergenti, ed è quindi da intendersi, più in generale, come un’iniziativa di tipo culturale atta alla discussione e al dibattito nell’ambito della fotografia contemporanea, oltre che alla finalizzazione, ove possibile e lungo la durata del programma, del progetto presentato dal partecipante.

Per le stesse ragioni, Ulixes Picture, ha consolidato in questi anni una collaborazione con Officine Fotografiche di Roma, riservando in maniera esclusiva due candidature, agli allievi provenienti dal Master di fotogiornalismo contemporaneo a cura di Emiliano Mancuso

Il programma Mentorship è curato da Pietro Vertamy, fotografo, direttore d’agenzia e curatore di progetti speciali per il collettivo Ulixes Picture.

Gianluca Abblasio

He graduated in Computer Science at the University of Rome, where he currently lives and works as a web developer. Began taking an interest in photography at Officine Fotografiche Roma where he consolidated over the years his training in documentary photography. He followed the master of the contemporary photojournalism held by Emiliano Mancuso and the master in documentary photography held by Lina Pallotta. The studies and the confrontation with Italian and foreign photographers and photo editors, have allowed him to understand what was really interested in telling stories and to mature his own idea of photography. The representation of contemporary society, its changes,the recognizable patterns in these. The nearby stories more than distant stories. The long-term project. He has exhibited several times in Italian and foreign festivals, including Fotoleggendo in Rome and Les Boutographies in Montpellier.
